In this tutorial we are going to bring together, all the creative elements we created over the past 2 videos and place them into the book cover document.

In this tutorial I will be demonstrating a smart way to manage complexity in photoshop.





00:01:33 - Drag cloud illustrations into header composition

00:07:34 - Place header composition into main book cover document




V - Move tool


Press & hold shift + click - Select multiple layers


cmd (Ctrl PC) + T - Free transform

cmd (Ctrl PC) + W - Close document

cmd (Ctrl PC) + G - Group layers

cmd (Ctrl PC) + S - Save document


Press & hold alt + shift + click & drag - Scale object (with free transform tool active)


cmd (Ctrl PC) + ; - Show guides




In this video tutorial, I will be using Adobe Photoshop CC 2014 for mac. Almost all of the principles demonstrated and covered will apply to future and previous versions. Some differences may apply if you are using a previous or future version.
